INTRODUCTORY. 



Ill the preparation of tliis City Directory we have spared neither time jior 
pains to secure exacl int'orniation on all the subjects treated. But a work 
like a directory, made up as it is of many little items of information, is peculiar. 
ly susceptil)le to error, in spite of the ^a-eatest care. 

A house to house canvass was made hy the compilers to every part of the 
city, and sm-ii (luestions asked assiiould have elicited full and accuratestatistics 
concerning c\i'ry family and individual. "We have conscientiously endeavored 
to prepare lor 151ul]ton a direct,ory that will not only be a credit to the coui- 
pilLMs, l)i;l to our enterprising and beautiful city. 

Under the liead of "New Names and Corrections" on page 180 will be 
found a hsl of changes so far as we were able to obtain them which were 
occasioned l)y removals and new comers after the body of the work was printed 
togetlier with a few errors discoveied as the work progressed. 

We invite our patrons to examine all departments of the book, as we be- 
lieve they will tind miiny items of useful information not found in any other 
ltiil)lished form. 

We desire to thank our many patrons and all others who have given us 
lielp and encouragement in the entcri)riRC. 

WILL B. GUTELIUS 
P. A. ALLEN.

CITY DTRECTOJ^Y, HLUFFTON, INDIANA. 



Circulation 1215. E^leventh Year, l 




Is the best advertising medium of any 
daily paper published in the city of Bluff= 
ton forthe reason that it reaches 1215 
houses daily. When the city directory 
was issued in May, 1900, the total circular 
tion was 825, now it is more than that in 
the city of Bluf fton alone and has added 
many readers on the rural routes and in 
the small towns of the county. Such an 
increase denotes that it is not only the 
best advertising medium, but that it is the 
best newspaper in the field. It gives 
more home news than any other daily 
paper in the city, therefore more people 
read it. If you are an advertiser or reader 
of the News you know these statenients 
are facts 00000
